Nimbus - Adopted!

Nimbus is a special needs golden retriever puppy available for adoption from Golden Retriever Rescue Resource, serving Ohio, Michigan and Indiana.

Nimbus was born May 25th when unfortunately she got stuck in her mother's birth canal for two days until taken by C-section. During this time we were told her mom ate her tail off, but the specialty vet said it could be a congenital deformity.

Because of this traumatic birth, Nimbus is urinary and fecal incontinent. The family that had her worked full time and just couldn't care for her properly and made the right decision to try and find a rescue to help Nimbus.

Nimbus' bottom few vertebrae and the nerves attached to them are not working properly and it’s causing the dull reflexes in the legs and the lack of urine/fecal control. We put out a plea on Facebook looking for a foster to adopt home so that we could bring this puppy into our adoption program and try to help her. We found that home and Nimbus officially arrived in our program in early October 2019.
Nimbus is able to walk around and we found out will take off running with the other dogs in her foster home. It isn't a normal gait pattern, but it works for her. We took her in for an MRI and to see a neuro vet. The MRI showed a perfect back with no issues with vertebrae. There is nothing surgically that will help Nimbus.

We had another consult who indicated we should give alternative therapy a try, which we are currently doing. Nimbus has been on Proin in order to try and tighten up the sphincter needed to be continent of urine. Adding Chinese herbs to this mix has also helped and now Nimbus has no more dribbling of urine. She is also able to tell fosters when she has to go potty and they have learned her "cues".

Nimbus a golden retriever for adoption, building core strength on a balance ball.Nimbus had four sessions of rehab at a cost of $425. This included electrical stimulation, acupuncture, plus exercises and water therapy. The goals are to try to improve her strength in the hind limbs and core to allow improved stamina for play and other gait activities, improve balance and coordination, improve gait pattern if possible, relieve discomfort in shoulder muscles and develop long-term management for compensatory issues that are likely to arise from having some compromise to hind limbs and to try and improve urinary and fecal continence.
Nimbus is getting massage monthly in order to relieve discomfort in her shoulder muscles that get a work out.
Dog water therapy. Nimbus building strength and muscle in order to improve her back end strength. She is a golden retriever for adoption from Golden Retriever Rescue Resource, serving Ohio, Michigan and Indiana.
Nimbus was finally spayed in May. Now she is back in rehab as without it her back end was weakening. She also goes for acupuncture every 2-3 weeks.

We continue to try and raise money to help pay for Nimbus and her medical needs. If you can help make her life better, we ask that you please help by donating what you can to help this sweet girl. Thank you. We'll list your name right here as her sponsor!
Nimbus is a very happy puppy that loves playing with other dogs, loves snuggling with people and has no idea she is any different then any other dog. She would benefit from another trained active dog in the home.
